For the second time this week, a new restock of the PlayStation 5 took place at the retail chain Walmart. The restock of the PS5 that transpired mere days ago at the storefront was labeled by some as being one of the "worst" since the console was released at the end of 2020. And while some had hoped that today's be buying opportunity would prove to be a bit better, it seems that it has largely another bust once again.
Much like the sale that transpired earlier in the week, the main complaints that a number of customers had with today's PS5 sale involved the Walmart website. Even though Walmart announced hours in advance that it would begin selling PS5 consoles this afternoon, once the restock actually happened, the website proceeded to crash, freeze, or just simply didn't function for a number of people. As such, most people reported that they couldn't even add the PS5 to their cart to begin the purchase in the first place.
In general, it sounds like Walmart continues to be one of the worst options as of late when it comes to buying the PS5. Although the store at one point had a more reliable sale process, the website that these PS5 restocks keep happening through almost always seems to have issues nowadays. As such, if you're still hunting down the new video game hardware, maybe try pursuing restocks at other stores.
Did you try to snag the PS5 today at Walmart? And if so, what was your own purchasing process like? Let me know down in the comments or on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

@Walmart Another failed Xbox and PS5 restock. Was in-line and the system just kicked me out. Put the systems in the stores so people can get them!— Josh W (@Gigacide) November 5, 2021
At Least You Had Fun
Well heck @walmart got my hopes up for your ps5 drop. Had a 7 minute wait and then it automatically reset to 60 minutes and has now been stuck at 58 for 6 minutes... :p
Had several kids helping me and theirs were also reset at various times back to 60. Oh well, was fun trying.— Kenneth Storla (@StorlaKenneth) November 5, 2021
